(מֹחִ, mo'ach, fatness, Job 21:24; kindred is the verb מָחָה, machah', Isa 25:6, "fatness unmarrowed," i.e. drawn out from the marrow- bones, and therefore the most delicate; μυελόςᾷ, Heb 4:12), the soft, oleaginous substance contained in the hollow of the bones of animals (Job 21:23); used figuratively for the delicate and most satisfying provisions of the Gospel (Isa 25:6), and likewise in the New Testament for the most secret thoughts of the heart (Heb 4:12). Other terms so rendered are חֵלֶב (che'leb, Ps 63:5, fat or fatness, as elsewhere rendered) and שַׁקּוּי (shikku'y, Pr 3:8, a moistening, i.e. refreshing of the bones; or "drink," as in Ho 2:5).
